That is a superb sight and well imaged Vicky.
Globulars are intriguing, and very interesting objects, and a popular target for Astro. Photographers.
One would Imagine a sight to behold if on a Planet orbiting one of those stars, I think there is a separation of at least 1 light year
between the closest pair. However, an observers night sky must be a mind boggling vista.
Congrats on a nice job on this.

Thank you for your comments. As well as imaging, I love doing visual astronomy and I often have my binoculars to hand if my scope is otherwise occupied doing the imaging. As I view and image objects such as globular clusters I wonder what the night sky would look like if I was on a planet orbiting one of the stars. I never get tired of the sights we can behold in our sky :)
